Make a Video in Mauriac – en francais! 1-3 December 2016


A chance to visit a French community with an established partnership with learners of French in Derby.  We will visit the town of Mauriac and create a video together in the French language.

Who for?
This is open to anyone who wants to practise their French at any level. For example current or previous members of French classes and their families and friends.

What will I get from participating?
This  experience will give you a 48 hours experience in an authentic French environment.  You can practise your existing French and learn new phrases.

The trip will leave East Midlands Airport Thursday  1 December and return to East Midlands  Saturday 3 December.

How much does it cost?
The visit is run as an event coordinated but not organised by Alastair Clark. This is not an official event of Derby City Council.  We estimate that costs will be about £220 per person see below.

What are the other costs?
Participants will also be responsible for meals and for travel insurance.

How does it work?
Initially you confirm your commitment to participate with a message to Alastair Clark (see below). Once we are sure that we have a minimum number of participants this will be confirmed and you will book your own flights directly with Ryanair.  Hotel bookings and local transport will then be reserved by Alastair Clark and you will be asked to pay on arrival.

How many ?
The group from Derby  will be between 6 and 10 participants and we will work with a similar group in Mauriac.

Recommendations to keep price low:
1) Last trip everyone managed with cabin baggage so did not pay for a bag in the hold
2)  The web site will try to encourage you to pay to book a seat. This is your choice but it is cheaper if you accept a random seat (its is a short flight) 
3) However, you should have some travel insurance for this trip. (If flights are cancelled Ryanair will pay the very minimum.) We can discuss this at the briefing meeting.
